On January 4th we have ceremoniously started the recordings for the upcoming album at Kohlekeller Studio. Roel van Helden is currently outdoing himself tracking drums with amazing energy. The drums sound alive and big in the newbulit recording room at Kohlekeller Studio, and already now with only guide tracks and drums it all sounds amazing. We'll probably spend the rest of the week celebrating our dutch drum-demon while he keeps beating the hell out of his drumset. Next up will be guitar recordings, starting probably by the end of the week. We'll keep you posted.

Powerwolf at Studio Fredman Checking in from Gothenburg/Sweden, where we are about to lay final touches to the upcoming album at Studio Fredman.

20/11/2012 Studio time ahead

It´s been mysteriously silent in the wolves´camp during the last few months. The reason for that is the best possible one: We have been more than busy writing the follow up album to "Blood of the saints". And after five intense months of blood, sweat and... even more blood, we can proudly tell you that most of the songwriting is done and there´s a truely monstrous piece of wolfish metal insanity on the way.

There will be fast stuff, heavy stuff and epic stuff as well as some unholy little surprises - and all of that in the most typical powerwolfish way you can imagine. Only 6 weeks to go until we enter the studio for the first part of the recordings - can´t wait to bring these songs to life. Be prepared for some kind of studio diary on Facebook whenever we find a minute in between invocations and studio work.

We’re looking forward to spreading the word of metal together with them in the future. Be prepared!"

Markus Riedler / CEO Napalm Records:
"Captain Napalm, the mighty twin-headed eagle, and the wolves have joined forces in order to begin the crusade for the Power Metal throne. There is no doubt that the ultimate victory of the band cannot be stopped. We are very proud to build a great future together with POWERWOLF. The album will be released in the summer of 2013 and the deafening howl of the wolves will make the competitors freeze with fear."

We also would like to say thank you to our companions in crime on this tour: Mystic Prophecy, Stormwarrior and the our french fellow pack Lonewolf, it was a pleasure to kill side by side with you. Last but not least we bow our heads to our fantastic crew, who set up the church, fought the demons and turned water into wine for us each and every day: Tomtom, Olli, Jan, Ralph, Anna and busdriver Bernd for finding all those timewarps on the highways.

28/05/2011 A shift in the sacristy

As some of you might have recognized watching the new promo pics, Tom Diener is no longer part of the pack. We decided to part ways already in December, during the songwriting process for "Blood of the saints". The wolves would like to thank him for a great time and bless him for his future. However, the holy drumseat is not vacant any longer: For upcoming crusades the pack welcomes Mr. Roel van Helden, the probably most hard hitting drum-reverent from the Netherlands known to man, who also performed the beats of blasphemy on "Blood of the saints".
